Make It Monday - No Sew Quilted Cards

Dawn has shown us how to make a quilted card without a sewing machine :-)  

There were so many beautiful quilts in my family and my husband's family which were all hand sewn many years ago. I have always loved the creativity and workmanship of these amazing women who made these timeless pieces without patterns and just their imaginations. 

I have been sending cards weekly to my friend in MA who is going through intensive chemo treatments.  She unfortunately is back in the hospital and I'm mailing this card to her this week...she was a quilter a few years back and I hope this helps to cheer her up a bit.
